Heartache2Hope Suicide Loss Support Program

May 16, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

A 12-Week Closed-Group Suicide Loss Grief Support Program for Adults in Hamilton

Losing someone important to us is always difficult. But losing someone to suicide is a loss like no other. It can be traumatizing,isolating, and leave you at higher risk for mental health issues.

We believe that although each person’s grief is unique, there are commonalities. We believe that a person’s journey through grief is made easier when shared with others on a similar journey. Our support groups are facilitated by professionals who foster a caring, understanding, non-judgmental place where experiences and feelings can be shared freely. We seek to relieve isolation, to assist with healing and to extend hope for a positive future.

Our 12 weekly sessions provide education about the grief process and opportunity for sharing around different themes, including:

  • Understanding the uniqueness of suicide loss grief
  • Sharing the experience of Suicide Loss Grief
  • Working Through Grief; Understanding the Needs of Mourning
  • Attending to practical matters
  • Uncovering strength and nurturing resilience
  • Developing Coping Skills
  • Sharing Memories – Continued Bonds with your loved one.
